BARITE POWDER – API

BARITE POWDER - API

Barite Crude Ore; is a mineral consisting of barium sulphate and is derived from the Greek word “βαρύς” (heavy). This name is in response to barite’s high specific gravity of 4.5, which is exceptional for a non-metallic mineral. The high density is responsible for its value in many applications. It is usually colourless or milky white, but can be almost any colour, depending on the impurities trapped in the crystals during their formation. Barite is chemically inert and insoluble.
